Sullivan Lake

We ended our North Pend Oreille Scenic Loop at Sullivan Lake, as far as stopping goes, driving straight back to Starvation Lake.

We passed many, many lakes on this scenic loop, I had no real idea-until we took this drive-how many bodies of water are in Washington.  If you’ve always wanted to live near a body of water, I’d say your chances our good if you move to Washington.

I didn’t even leave the truck for this pix, just point and shoot in any direction around here, its all beautiful!  The above shot of the lake was taken standing just in front of the truck door, (barely out of the truck) in the parking area.

Next Up:  The Afternoon History Cruise on Lake Pend Oreille on the Shawnodese.

Daily History Lake Cruise
This daily afternoon cruise from Sandpoint is a delightful 9 mile loop trip near the shores of Lake Pend Oreille. Learn about the history & geology of our magnificent lake. See where the ice dam was formed 17,000 years ago that led to the creation of Lake Pend Oreille. Lake Pend Oreille’s origin is a fascinating story and has been said by geologists to be “The greatest geologic story never told.” Learn about the early Indian history and David Thompson, the first white man to explore our area. Discover the rich rail history, and our very strange connection to Navy submarine research. Most of all, experience the awesome beauty of our lake and mountains. And as a special treat for our young (and young at heart) passengers, children have an opportunity to be “Captain of the Day” & take a turn at the wheel.

General $19, Senior 60+ $18, Child ages 3 to 12 $14,
